Printer sharing problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a printer installed on another computer that is set up to be shared by all the other computers on my home network.  I have installed that printer on all of my other computers and can print from those machines with out any problem.  Now Live Onecare keeps  bring up diaglogue boxes  which asks me if I want to share that same  printer that I already have installed on all my other computers.   If I  canel the dialogue box,  those messages keep poping up.  If I respond that I don't want to install that printer, it then removes the shared printer from that computer and i have to go back and reinstall it.  I have been a Live Onecare subscriber on all of my computers for over a year and this problem has only begun within the last 45 days.  How do I solve this problem?

    Open OneCare on the printer where the shared computer exists and click on change settings. On the Printer Sharing tab in OneCare, uncheck the box for "automatically share all printers..."

    That should stop OneCare from offering it to the other PCs.
